. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. at approximately 6:15 a.m. eastern time, former u.s. senator george mcgovern passed away while in hospice in sioux falls, south dakota. he was 90 years old. an early opponent of the vietnam war he was, the nominee for president in 1972 for democrats. he lost in a landslide election to republican richard nixon. in a statement, the mcgovern family said "we are blessed to know that our father lived a long, successful and productive life. advocating for the hungry, fighting for peace." mcgovern long will be remembered for his unwavering opposition to war and war is where we begin this morning. today we're taking you back to june 28th, 1914. yes. june 28, 1914. that was the day that a foreign emissary was assassinated while on a diplomatic mission in sarajevo. that set off a chain of events that led to the largest global conflict the world had ever seen. on that fateful day, a 19-year-old took the life of arch duke franz ferdinand. knowing the dead to the austrian hungarian empire would not go unanswered, serbia appealed to their russian neighbors f
biden became one of the youngest people ever elected to the u.s. senate. he's been steep in the political gospel of the democratic party for 40 years. he's played key roles in u.s. foreign policy as a member and chairman of the foreign committee. middle east, southwest asia, the united states has been there in the last four decades. joe biden has too. of course, congressman paul ryan who chairs the house budget committee also likes to tout his foreign policy chops. >> i have more foreign policy experience coming into this job than president obama did coming into his. >> can you explain how do you have more foreign policy experience than senator obama did. he was on the foreign relations committee. >> norah, i voted to send men and women to war. i've been to iraq and afghanistan. i've met with our troops to get perspectives. i've been to the funerals, i've talked to the widows, talked to the wives, the moms and the dads. that's something. that matters. >> yeah. the sitting vice president shouldn't have much problem landing a blow on a claim like that. though perhaps rather
logistics. >>> it's been more than a month since the u.s. consulate in benghazi was attacked. it's clear that the first interpretation of what happened on that day was not correct. the day after the attack on september 12th, the state department linked the benghazi attacks to the pro-tests in cairo. they said it was due to the inflammatory content on the internet. we now know it was a planned attack and no protesters were present. here was secretary of state hillary clinton explaining the discrepancy. >> i do know this. there is nobody in the administration motivated by anything other than trying to understand. to this day, we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. every one of us has made clear that we are providing the best information we have at that time. and that information continues to be updated. >> so while we do know that the first explanation provided bied obama administration regarding the attack in benghazi was not correct, what we're still to learn is if it was intentionally dishonest. due in
for indiana's u.s. senate seat you said this. >> i believe that life begins at conception. the only exception i have for -- to have an abortion is in that case of the life of the mother. i just -- i struggled with it myself for a long time, but i came to realize that life is that gift from god. and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> let me explain something. rape and sexual assault are complicated experiences for survivors. some of us fight, kick, scream and resist at every moment. some of us eventually give in to save our own lives or to manage the horror. some of us know that what is happening is rape and others of us just know it's wrong but don't have any words to describe why. some of us push the memories down and try to forget and others of us battle openly with the nightmares and the scars every day. there is no one right way to survive. there is no one right way to feel. and as we heal, we learn not to judge ourselves or to judge our fellow survivors because we learn that judgment can wound as deeply a
in the news where he basically said that the u.s. bureau of labor statistics apparently in conjunction with the chicago machine, right, the chicago guys will do anything. you can't debate, so you change the numbers. that's the idea, that that's what happened here, that these numbers aren't real. >> i was astonished when i first heard that, considering he used to be the head of this whole network and everyone -- >> shhh. >> that's amazing. the other thing is, that these jobs numbers, they destroy their big talking point of the republicans over the last eight, nine months that unemployment has not been below 8%. it's also falling into another one of their talking olympians, that hispanic unemployment is above 10%. now it's below, 9.8%. >> this was not good 7.8 but all of the subcategories were falling. >> in contrast to what mitt romney was saying on the clip, where people have left the job market, that is so not true. there are 418,000 people who have entered the job market. you can't say the numbers are falling because people are quitting. >> the question is what is romney going to say
'm going to send scott brown back to the u.s. senate, and i'm going to send him there knowing that he is a republican, that we have very high levels of part sfwlanship, and then he is going to be a vote against the president who i'm sending in. like, who is that voter? what are they thinking at that moment some. >> i often think about these folks. i think we're not talking enough about party, and i think there's an anxiety around independent voters don't like partisanship, so there's an anxiety to say this is what this party stands for, and this is what this other party stands for, and you get to choose. but this kind of cross-ticket voting that goes on, you are basically, you know, you are buying gridlock, and are you committing yourself to a gridlock kind of politics. i actually feel like there's something -- we have an odd view of independent voters, and we feel like we can't talk about party ideology and really just make a case for like if you vote for scott brown and you vote for barack obama, are you going to have trouble. like, you're going to have real trouble with getting --
. the center of sandy will move parallel to the southeast coast of the u.s. today and will approach land tomorrow night. both the romney and obama campaigns have canceled scheduled events already due to sandy. so if you're in an affected area, stay inside, stay off the roads and stay tuned into msnbc. all right. now, let's turn to the final countdown. i wanted to sing that but i don't have a very good singing voice. but we're in the final days and we can all agree that the way a political candidate runs a race is important, but how a candidate closes the deal is crucial. and with just one more week left until election day, this is when the candidates' closing strategies kick in. while we've harped on battleground states, a new analysis by the associated press shows in the case to 270, may come down to 106 counties. these are counties with names like hamilton county, ohio, loudoun county, virginia, and hills bborough county, florida. they're the same ones that george w. bush won in 2004 and that then senator obama wan in 2008. these are the swing voters. and part of the candidates' closin
